1. where do you see yourself being in your profession in five years? why did you establish these goals? 你的五年职业目标是什么?你为什么会确定这样的职业目标?
问题分析： 与中国面试官相比， 老外更加重视这个问题。在这个问题上， 面试官捕捉的信息点是： 第一， 这个家伙是个有计划有目标的人吗?第二， 他对自己所申请的职业了解吗?他知道这个职位的下一步是什么吗?第三， 这个家伙所制定的职业目标切合实际吗?此外， 外国面试官往往是你未来的直线经理或者顶头上司， 与人力资源部的面试官相比， 他更希望遇到一个已经斩钉截铁地决定要在这个领域里发展的申请人。

回答示范2： in five years? i think there are two possibilities. i will either be working as a senior in sales, or i will join a management team as a sales manager. you know during the past three years i worked my way up from sales rep to sales team leader, and i’ve felt that both positions have their own attractions. so, in five years, i would be happy to be head of sales at a company, or, if i can be a team leader in such a huge company like siemens, that would be even better.

34. what are your salary expectations for this position? starting salary? salary in five years? 你期望的薪资是多少?你希望五年以后你的薪资是多少?
回答示范1： i expect to have a salary between 4,000 and 5,000 as this is the average salary the students of our school can get. but we can negotiate that. as a new graduate i care about career development opportunities more than the starting salary. as to the salary in five years, frankly speaking, i haven’t even thought about it. the more the better, but of course, it depends on what i can do for the company.
回答示范2： i make about 4,000 yuan rmb now and i expect a salary from 5,000 to 6,000. it’s not so easy to tell how much i can make in five years. if i am still at the same position i don’t think the salary then will be too much different, however, i certainly hope i can do more important things for adidas and then be offered a higher pay.
